It's not that the LG player has problems playing HD DVD's it's that it doesn't support the HDi interactive layer. So that means no pop-up menus to be displayed during video playback, no persistent user-defined bookmarks, no picture-in-picture/In-Movie Experience (for cast commentaries/interviews, behind the scenes footage, etc.), no calculators (example; body-count, car-insurance/damage, etc.) such as the one in TF&TF: Tokyo Drift.
Seriously though, you should do a little more research before you spend more than a grand on a crippled player.
